Wearable Haptics in Rehabilitation and VR

Wearable Haptics in Rehabilitation and VR

Haptic devices are wearable mechatronic devices providing tactile feedback to the user. They can be used to interacti in Virtual Reality, in the shape of thimbles and gloves, or for active motor assistance of the user, in the shape of hand exoskeletons. In the research activities of the School Of Advanced Studies Sant'Anna of Pisa and of the research projects TELOS and RoboGYM, we develop and apply those devices in the field of rehabilitation, with particoular experimental methods: here the rehabilitation takes place in Virtual Reality, with exercises shaped in the form of "serious games", true videogames that enhance engagement and active mental participation of the patient.

The Human-Robot-Interaction (HRI) group (https://humanrobotinteraction.santannapisa.it/ ) of the IIM - Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, coordinated by prof. Antonio Frisoli, has expertise in collaborative robotics, human-robot interaction, VR and telepresence, AI and enabling digital technologies for robotics. Activity of the HRI group deals with developing theories, models and systems for new advanced human-machine and human-robot interface systems, and in particular robotic systems that can physically cooperate (pHRI) with humans in a safe and intuitive manner and interact in Virtual Environments within industrial and medical applications. The group has a consolidated experience in the areas of design of robots, with particular reference to exoskeletons and wearable robots, AI and intelligent autonomous systems, advanced telepresence, rehabilitation robotics, haptic devices and wearable haptics.
